Thora Birch to Recur on USA’s ‘Colony’

Thora Birch has signed on for a recurring role on upcoming USA Network thriller “Colony.”

The former child star and “American Beauty” and “Ghost World” alum will play Morgan, a laid-back software engineer with a conscience. She is repped by Berwick & Kovacik.

Colony” comes from executive producer Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “Bates Motel”) and Ryan Condal (“Hercules”). Nelson McCormick (“24”) also executive produces. It stars Josh Holloway (“Lost”) and Sarah Wayne Callies (“The Walking Dead”) as parents in a Los Angeles family struggling to stay together and survive in a not-too-distant dystopian future. Peter Jacobson (“House”) is also among the cast.

The series is cloaked in mystery, which is something Holloway is used to after working with Cuse on “Lost.”

“In the tradition of working with Carlton Cuse, I don’t know anything that’s going on — it’s a wonderful discovery [process],” he told journalists in August at the USA’s Television Critics Assoc. press day.

A major project for USA, “Colony” is a co-production between Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions. It premieres at 10 p.m. Jan. 14. The pilot was shown last summer at Comic-Con, where fans were also treated to free Uber rides and other treats themed around the show.
